I have often used the optical output from my 2006 MBP which is avilable from the headphone jack as described. All i needed to do was purchase a mini jack to toslink (?) cable.
Last week i purchased a new MBA and I asked about optical, the sales rep told me that he always used optical out from his MBA. I was surprised to hear this since i never came across this feature listed in specs. The rep then searched for some optical info and was just as surprised to find none listed.
I have yet to try the optical out from the headphone jack from my MBA as both my MBP and optical to mini jack cable are in another continent at the moment. The mystery continues for me...
